Darrelle Revis, a 6-0, 170 pound point guard from Aliquippa (PA) High School, made the best of his opportunities at the fourth week of the Five Star Basketball Camp on the campus of Robert Morris University.
Revis, a rising junior, was named to the camp's NCAA all-star game where he scored 13 points including three from behind the arc. He also was honored as the group's Best Defender and the Playoff MVP. (The campers are divided into three sections, NIT, NCAA and NBA, based on age and skill level.)
Revis is looking for a better campaign for his high school squad which last year was upset in the WPIAL quarterfinals. They finished with a 22-4 record. Revis averaged approximately 15 points and six assists as a sophomore.
This is the Pittsburgh-area youth's third season at Five Star. "The competition this year has been more competitive," Revis said. "We've had the opportunity to play with top players from around the country and even around the world."
Revis took advantage of what Howard Garfinkel and Will Klein make available each summer for five weeks at the Pittsburgh-area camp. Revis was a frequent participant at Station 13, the optional session for players to work on an aspect of the game. According to the Five-Star staff, kids who head to station 13 tend to give a little extra at game-time too.
Revis said so far he's heard from Eastern Michigan, which is coached by ex-Robert Morris coach Jim Boone, but is also interested in programs such as Ohio State, Pitt, Maryland and Notre Dame.
He also plays with the Pittsburgh DIA AAU team which made it to the championship round of the recent Charlie Weber Invitational in Morgantown, WV,
